About this listing
Welcome to the heart of the East Side! We would describe our bungalow as traditional meets mid-century meets Marfa (with color!). The neighborhood has taken quite a boom recently and getting anywhere in town is quite easy by bike, car, bus (the bus stop is 1.5 blocks away) or cab. You'll find all of the popular East Side and downtown hangouts nearby!
The house is ideal for a weekend getaway. The living space and kitchen are designed as one room with a vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has all you will need (including Le Creuset / All Clad pots and pans) to cook at home. Both bedrooms have really comfortable beds. There is a large porch on the side of the house and is a perfect place to have a cup of coffee in the morning or a nice glass of wine in evening.

Record Player (with awesome records of course)

Ample Street Parking
Interaction with Guests
As little or as much as you're comfortable with! We love interacting with guests and see Airbnb as a personal experience for both guests and hosts alike. At times we will stay in our renovated Airstream which is on the property, but this is typically only during the week if at all. We are more than happy to share a beer with you and give you inside tips on what to do in this amazing city!
The East Side is one of the hottest places to be in Austin these days. The neighborhood is rapidly changing and lots of hot spots are just around the corner!
Bus Stops are conveniently 1.5 blocks from the house. We are finding Uber and Lyft to be a convenient and affordable mode of transportation given our close proximity to downtown.
No smoking inside please. This is our home so please be respectful of the space and neighbors. Please leave the home in the same condition you found it.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN and contact us should you need anything.
Nespresso Machine and milk frother for that perfect cup of Espresso. Or a regular coffee maker if that's more your style.
As before, Steven and Chris' home was the perfect, charming and quiet oasis to relax and be comfortable in during my Austin visit. Their hospitality was warm and friendly, the house itself was beautiful and spotless, and I couldn't ask for a cooler, more central neighborhood to stay in. Thanks once more for a great stay!
Great little house. My husband and I spent three nights in Austin with friends and this was just what we were looking for. Location was awesome for getting to any area of Austin and the house itself is super cute and uniquely decorated. We would definitely stay here again when traveling with another couple.
Our stay in Austin at Steven and Chris' home could not have been more perfect. Great neighbourhood, close to some really awesome drinking, food and music spots (many of which were recommendations from Steven and Chris, thank you!!) Getting downtown via Uber was super easy (cost about $5 and max. 10 mins).
The house is even better than pictured and had everything we needed for a very comfortable trip. I hope to come back to Austin so I can stay here again!!
This property was an absolute dream. The photographs are fantastic, but it looks EVEN better in person. It's artistic, and fun... We kept discovering new things we loved about it. Close to a really good taco spot, in a trendy area of town, and easily accessible to go galavanting for the evening. It was my first stay in Austin, and I would 100% come back again. I love Airbnb, and this is by far the best property I've stayed in so far. A triple plus!!!! Stay here!!!!
Driving up to the house on New York Ave, it was clear we were in for more than we bargained for. The house is canopied by a huge tree with an inviting porch that spans the length of the house. Also situated next to a green space. The interiors of the home were spotless, beautiful and inspiring. Great communication and thoughtful hosting lead to a seamless experience and I can not wait to get back. I will rebook this house.
Steven and Chris's house is just as lovely as it looks in the photos, if not more so. If you're interested in design, it's definitely one for you - it's filled with perfectly thought out details. There's also a terrifically big, comfortable bed, so it's great if you need to catch up on sleep. As hosts, Steven and Chris made the whole experience incredibly straightforward, easy and relaxed. A really special place to stay.
Steven and Chris are great hosts! Very helpful, accommodating and easy to communicate with. The house is exactly as described and the photos don't do it justice as to how adorable and well decorated it is. The beds are super comfortable as well. I would recommend this place to anyone.
About the Host, Steven And Chris
Finance / Landscape Design Couple.
We've lived in Austin for 6 years now and couldn't be more happy here. We absolutely LOVE our home - It's our favorite place to be and enjoy sharing it with others because it's truly a special place. Nearly everything inside means something to us which is what makes a home a home I suppose!
We tend to travel West a lot these days for some reason. So we'll likely be in our Vanagon Westfalia out in the desert somewhere while you're enjoying the place.
It's a good life....Steven and Chris
